ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) First lady Michelle Obama has invited Mexico's first lady to tour a Maryland elementary school honored for teaching healthy living.
Obama and Margarita Zavala, the wife of Mexican President Felipe Calderon, are scheduled to visit the New Hampshire Estates Elementary School in Silver Spring, Md., on Wednesday. Many students at the school come from Central and South America.
Last year the school won the USDA's Healthier US School Challenge Silver Award, which rewards schools that promote nutrition and physical activity. Educators there teach ways to maintain health as part of the physical education program.
Students sent pictures of a butterfly garden they built to students at a Mexican sister school, which is near a monarch butterfly migration path.
Obama visited schools and museums in Mexico City with Zavala last month.
